NARS Pencil Sharpener

The NARS Pencil Sharpener is one of the most underrated accessories that gets so little talked about.

The NARS Pencil Sharpener was my best purchase this month. After its appearance, I will finally be able to answer the question, which pencil sharpener is the best!

Before the NARS Pencil Sharpener, I couldn’t answer it as I didn’t have the “best” sharpener. It was the most ordinary one. From time to time she reduced the service of the pencils, mercilessly breaking them, and sometimes she did not sharpen them at all.

Since I use pencils that are completely different in terms of lead softness, length and width, I chose them for the objectivity of the review.

Description of NARS Pencil Sharpener

Outwardly, the sharpener is the most ordinary.

But I like its design: stylish black in color, on the background of which the letters NARS.

The words “Made in Germany” are pleasant to the ear.

How does a cosmetic pencil sharpener work

I won’t be me if I don’t show you step-by-step instructions on how I sharpen my eyeliner.

I think you recognize the NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil – Milk, which is close to the end of its life.

What is the difficulty of sharpening a thick pencil

Not all sharpeners can sharpen so perfectly a fat and thick lead, which either breaks in the middle of the sharpening, or “crumples” in it, remaining inside the sharpener. As you can see, the NARS Pencil Sharpener did an excellent job with this.

The next test subject was the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Pencil.

A waterproof pencil has a “dry” and stiffer lead, so sharpness is important here, otherwise it will be difficult for them to work. For this reason, they often break during the sharpening stage of the pencil tip.

The next example is the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.

I love using soft lip pencils. This is the lead found in the MAC Pro Longwear Pencil Series.

Due to the softness of the lead and the quick grindability, you have to sharpen the pencil more than once, so any troubles associated with a poor-quality sharpener can affect the work and interfere with it! But this is not the case with the NARS Pencil Sharpener.

And the last “martyr” of the review – MAC Eye Kohl Smolder Eye Liner.

I didn’t have time to throw it away, as I had already bought a new one, so you have the opportunity to evaluate the work of the sharpener.

It is the ending pencils that are most difficult to sharpen, since their size does not allow the pencil to scroll inside the sharpener. But that didn’t happen with the NARS Pencil Sharpener. She perfectly “gripped” the lead and it took two turns to achieve this result.

In the end, I was 100% satisfied with the purchase!

And now, if they ask me about the best pencil sharpener, I will answer: “NARS Pencil Sharpener”!
